Telegram Messenger Positive Reviews
Secure, Easy to UseOVERALL If you’re tired of companies like facebook reading your messages, yes they really do, it’s time to up your game. Telegram and Signal are both great apps, Telegram being a bit easier, and polished. Telegram chats use two modes. In standard mode messages are encrypted and stored on their servers. In “padlock” mode messages are encrypted and stored on your device. Both are secure, however in “padlock” mode if you, for instance, buy a tablet and install Telegram it won’t show your messages from other devices. Remember, enable touch ID on your phone/iPad/macOS device and Telegram, otherwise anyone could physically access the device and read your conversations. SUGGESTED IMPROVEMENT FOR DEVS It could use one improvement, when you share via iOS it needs to have both the standard AND a “padlock” icon for secure chat. Otherwise you’ll end up with two different chats with each friend. Until then you need to select share, Telegram, and manually pick the right chat.
Also, make the “read” checkmark color customizable or bold. Or better use an “o” for unread and a check for read..Version: 7.8.4
In desperate need of Group Video ChatHey, I’ve been using Telegram for over 10+ years and I haven’t had any problems with this application whatsoever everything works great but, there is one issue that I have with this application and that is the inability to create a group video chat that is why I can only give telegram 3 stars. I honestly believe that is a crucial disadvantage to this application I say that because, I have family and friends that live all over the world whether it be in different states or different countries and we all have telegram on our phones. That being said we would like to I’ll be able to talk in a video group chat with each other which we are unable to because this application doesn’t provide that option. So therefore since telegram doesn’t provide a video group chat option we have to download another application to be able to do that Task. Which in my opinion is extremely ridiculous because you should be able to perform the test on this app as well. Instead of making people waste valuable space on their phones by download in other apps to perform the test where y’all can provide that ability on your app so we don’t have to download other apps to perform that and we could save space on our Devices..Version: 7.4.2
Need Video calling feature, faster passcode lock & a bug fixI am enjoying telegram as my main chatting app as it’s secure faster & fun to use! But unfortunately it has only voice calling feature which makes me to use another apps for that feature only! I cordially expect that developer will add that asap!
It’s passcode locking feature in order to provide best security to its user, but apps lock doesn’t work immediately! Which should be must! The minimum time is 1 minutes! It should be locked within a fraction of second as some other apps do! As long as we have face unlocking feature so it will not bother us!
Lastly, I have facing an unexpected issue sometimes! I’m not sure where I tap but when it happens telegram stop functioning & start glitching non stop glitching! It needs the apps to launch again!
So please make the apps more lovely by adding video calling features and make the passcode lock more quicker & fix the bug! Thanks for reading with patience!.Version: 5.11.1
Deleted messagesThe genuine telegram app deletes text messages from both sides but the third party apps keeps those messages and that is not good because it invades the peoples privacy status and sometimes they have the whole conversation sent to others even if it was confidential, for example if you saved a wrong number and then wrote a text or sent a photo then realized that its the wrong account and deleted it but yet if that person is using the “ third party apps” then he will still have those texts, photos, and user information and for me that is a major flaw in your agreement to them. I wish you can fix that problem or get rid of those apps and save other peoples sanity.
Overall I love the Genuine app its so slick easy and so much comfortable to use I have been using it for the past 3 & 1/2 years and it never let me down. Keep up the good work and please check your agreements with the third party apps.
Thanks in advance.Version: 6.1.2
Please I’m a big fanLook I’m a big fan of this app I used like a few years ago and now it’s at a whole different state and it’s so much better then WhatsApp and now with their new update about privacy most the people I know don’t know about technology stuff and change logs but I do so I’ve gotten a handful of people to switch and a few friends and family and they’ve all said they love this app and it’s true it’s awesome but they won’t delete WhatsApp because it’s missing, stories or a status a way to let others know about you including myself I now have 2 messaging devices I use telegram as my main and WhatsApp I use it for school and status if you could add this it would mean a lot to me I’ve heard you just hit 500 mil🥳 and I feel good to have been a part of that I know it may take a while for you too implement this feature but it would be the death of WhatsApp for all the people I’ve invited.Version: 7.3.1
Almost perfectMy S.O. and I have been looking for the perfect secure video chatting platform for a while. We were pleasantly surprised that Telegram finally started implementing video chatting. It is very buggy at the moment, but Telegram is definitely on the right track and has everything that we are looking for. We use the group video call feature to share screens and audio, and it’s very easy to seamlessly switch devices without having to disrupt the call. The iOS app seems more buggy than desktop as it overheats and freezes up my phone during long calls. Other bugs include recursive screen-in-screens during screen sharing, hearing your own voice when sharing audio, and suddenly not hearing the other person. It also would be great to have these features in the individual voice chats as well. Overall, we’re very excited for these features and the quick updates..Version: 7.8.4
Scammer’s ParadisePositives: Telegram had some positive features. You can start a secret chat with someone. There’s freedom of speech in that app and you can say politically incorrect things without getting banned. You can post content which are deemed offensive. That’s why I like Telegram. I do miss the app, though. Unfortunately, I can’t go back, not after what happened to me.
Negatives: I was catfished by a scammer. The problem with Telegram is that it doesn’t have a report feature. I reported the scammer via using Yahoo mail, Gmail, and even messaged notoscam. Sadly, Telegram wouldn’t do anything about it. I had to delete my account, and deleted the app itself because of how persistent and dangerous the scammer is. The scammer is using a photo of an actual doctor and is pretending to be him. I suspect it’s an African scammer, but I’ll never know. The only thing I had done was to block the scammer on Telegram, but that wasn’t enough..Version: 7.6.1
So far so good 😎I am on a mission to get as many people away from the tentacles of Zuckerboss as possible. Have managed to get a few dozens of people to switch from whatsflop to this better platform. The only complain I get is that this does not have status, which apparently social media junkies can’t live without 🤦🏻♂️ Another complain is that the app freezes or acts slow in low connection spots some thing those users of whatsflop supposedly didn’t deal with it. Hopefully these things will be addressed and improved/fixed. I know this is still evolving and growing so I am hopeful it would become the dominant messaging platform and I will contribute to that by getting people to jump ship. I only hope we don’t get sold out like all these other money hungry corps out there. Keep up the good work guys, I wish you great success in the years to come 👍🏼👍🏼.Version: 7.3.1
Video callingIn this day and age video calling is a must with every app such as Telegram, and lack of it unnecessarily opens the door for the competition. Despite my desire to solely use Telegram to connect with friends & family all over the world, I’m having to use other apps, because of the lack of this feature in this app, and I’m sure this is the case for most of its other users.
I’d give this app 4 stars if it had the video calling feature, and 5 if it wasn’t for some other malfunctions I come across every now and then, such as, all of a sudden losing all my communications with a contact from the beginning till a random date, or altogether till the present! This has happened to me several times with different contacts, so I highly recommend backing your communications up if they’re important to you.
I really hope, and strongly suggest that the developers add the video calling feature ASAP.
Thank you for all your efforts for providing the public with a great communication tool! 🙏🌹.Version: 5.12.2
4th Update App ReviewThe customizable colors, dark theme, sleek, fluid messaging app, private, and secure. Destructible messages are a plus. I like the spoiler option it’s pretty cool, along with many other features. Previously Telegram was lacking video calls, Group Video Calls, FaceID. I’ve noticed they added it on which is great! End to End encryption should be standard. Why go through the hassle of doing secret chats? The option should be the other way around “unsecret chats”
Please add Pin Numbers. Some people dont like to share phone numbers. Having the option for Pin number to add users on Telegram is a Marvelous idea.
More business features are needed like having the capability to pay and receive payments within the app. Having an online store. Add a “transparent theme” for themes and colors that be awesome! One thing needs FIXING. The app has been updated. Now it’s complicated and confusing to change the color themes. When applying the colors and theme it does not update it. Someone sent me a voice note. It took 12 hours to receive it. The voice note stayed at a downloading state the whole time. I have 5G service.
Please update with new features suggested and fixes. Then we can agree it deserves a 5 Star rating. Im sticking to 4 stars until then..Version: 8.4
Good app for communication, but no good for investments***Disclaimer***
This is only describing the various situations where forex group chats exist on the service. Nothing against the actual service itself, only the Forex groups on the app
So the app is wonderful in terms of communication, and a good competitor to Whatsapp (another wonderful messaging service). My only beef is the fact that I was the idiot (last October) to download the app due to being suckered by a rando online about a bitcoin forex. I was unaware of such financial lingo, assuming that I would get my return profit in 48 hours.
If people recommend you to various places that offer a return profit via forex, DO NOT EXPECT MONEY BACK IMMEDIATELY. You’ll only lose your money due to the highly volatile nature of not only Bitcoin, but also Forex itself is essentially a bigger gamble due to various international markets operating around the clock. Whether it be through Facebook or any other social media accounts, you cannot be suckered by such things. It’s a pandemic and the last thing one should want is to lose money.
It’s precious and you should not let your emotions control the wallet. Ones intellect and wise choices dictates money. So if you’re looking to save money, do the research, be financially literate, and save the money.
Nothing against this app once again, but the groups who promise for get rich quick schemes..Version: 7.4.2
Telegram ReviewI enjoy using the app much more than any other social media messaging platform. The ability to create group chats, call people, and customizable features in addition to a UI that is seamless with other devices, and doesn't stutter is a treat. But, in some areas telegram falls short due to lack of video messaging, the traffic seems to be lower than other platforms, and searching for groups isn't as easy as some may like it to be. Regardless, a video chat feature similar to instagrams live mode would be perfect for the group chats. If possible maybe even allowing features thats on discord to be on the app, better bots would be a plus that telegram makes themselves rather than relying on other people bots. Most bots seem to not work as well as the competition.
Overall its a great 1 v 1 app, but apps such as WhatsApp or instagrams video-calling is superior, and discords bots and chat customization is superior. Telegram is the perfect middle ground that could do better..Version: 5.7
What WhatsApp wishes it wasPretty much everything WhatsApp has and more. Not to mention, actually good security—unlike WhatsApp. End to end encryption where the keys are kept on your device. If you do some research, Telegram’s security has been publicly audited by real world events.
I work in cyber sec and use Telegram as my default messenger for everything. Whether it’s sending large files (seriously, I’ve sent files over a gigabyte) to joining a variety of channels/groups. I honestly believe Telegram could be the next IRC chat (I get all my security and tech news and updates from telegram channels faster than news sites or rss).
I’ve been slowly converting my friends and family to it. Simply the best and the features just keep coming. Thank you Telegram developers! You’ve truly revolutionized decentralized messaging..Version: 6.2.1
Suggestion for improvementWhen I scroll the files/links shared with someone, and this person sends me a message, I do not receive the notification, and the message is considered as read like being within the chat. (which I actually am, but in another tab)
I checked that on Windows, Linux and different Apple devices. It is not the issue on tablets, as the display is separated, neither on desktops, if user widens the window so that the chat and files/links are present concurrently. However on cellphone devices only chat or files/links tab can be displayed at a time.
I guess it will be better to notify the user whenever they do not actually see the message with a topside pop-up and show the label “unread messages” within the chat when user is back from files/links tab..Version: 6.3.1
HEADACHEI logged out from one of my accounts and since then This app doesn’t work. All it shows is a white page. I tried restarting my phone but it didn’t help and no I don’t wanna redownload it because that will erase all of my data. The most annoying thing about an app would be this kind of losing data and you know what? This is not the first time. Sometimes with the new updates I had this problem again. In my country I can say that we pay A LOT for using internet and I’m just sick and tired of wasting it on redownloading things that I didn’t even wanted to be erased in the first place. [ and also more importantly it’s just so frustrating and time consuming ]
Since it’s impossible to avoid all this kind of mistakes, in the future updates please add “mass downloading” which can offer us redownloading all the latest data we downloaded on our other devices or lost all together..Version: 7.1.2
Not fully accessible using voice OverI am visually impaired, and I use Voice Over to navigate through the various features on my IPhone 8. I am using the most current version of IOS 13. I can only use Voice Over when listening to a single contact (I can activate the play button). But when I try to activate the play button when chatting within a group, Voice Over does not work. Instead, I have to turn Voice Over off and activate play like a user who is sighted. I fortunately have enough vision to do this, but a blind or visually impaired person with less or no vision would not be able to perform the work around I have found. I have tried to report this several times, and I have received no feedback at all. I find that to be very discouraging. I know that some blind useds are experiencing the same problem while others are not, so it is not an across the board problem. However, the issue still needs to be invchstigated..Version: 5.15.2
Awesome AppIt’s really an awesome app. More developed, practical, helpful and simple. I believe it will be more powerful and helpful for those who have wide range businesses and need to reply to their clients with same instructions for repeated question by providing Telegram with “Quick Replies” service. Quick Replies can have a table with replies and we can call the table inside any chat by starting our reply with a symbol such as “/“ to bring the list of replies we have already to choose one quickly.
Also, it will be powerful if you add “Auto Reply Message”. Auto Reply Message will be sent to those clients who text us for the first time. This message can contain information about our business and some general instructions to help the once who text us for the first time.
Thank you..Version: 7.8.4
Telegram is awesome.I truly love it, I wanted to try a new app for texting and this is perfect. It has great privacy features, you can customize it in a lot of ways, and it works perfectly. I only have a small suggestion that may not be as important, but it would be a great improvement.
I imported a chat from another app, and as soon as I saw hundreds of messages arriving, I regretted it. I want to delete them, but Telegram does not allow to select many messages really fast to delete them, you have to tap them one by one to select them. It would be great if it allowed users to select multiple messages faster, or if it had an option to delete imported messages in an specific chat just in case the user regrets it.
But overall, a really great app, I recommend it..Version: 7.4.1
Awesome except for two pointsTelegram has been a great application which i have been using for more than 6 years non-stop! But lately i have switched to ios and i am short on storage. Whenever i clean the cache, the number in the app goes down but in my settings the numbers will not change that much. So every time i am supposed to delete the app and re-download it so i will lose all my secret chats. Also being able to delete messages of the other person for both sides?! This is not new but it is so bad. I mean imagine you are talking to an online shop, you send the receipt but they will delete it later and deny that you have paid! I hope you make changes and solve these problems. I think these are the only downsides that i can mention for this wonderful app. Thank you..Version: 6.3.1
Better than WhatsappIt is safe and secure with the option of end-to-end encrypted messaging, easier and more user friendly than whatsapp. The new version has video call as well. I call my friends around the world for free. Channels are great and recently added options to leave comments and pin more than one messages are great features and it comes with a desktop version to use everything on your computer as well.
Overall, I prefer telegram to whatsapp.
Note to new users: don’t delete your messages to release storage on your phone, instead, learn to clear your telegram cache.
To the developers team: I think including sliding bar on the voice messages would be good. Also an option to lock the voice recorder on the desktop version similar to the mobile. Please keep expanding video calls to do meetings in groups. And finally, it would be great to add personal folders to saved messages, I use telegram as my favorite quick note app as well! because it is easy and has a user friendly format plus desktop so it can also be used as a personal note taking app and if you add folder options to saved messages, it will make a great tool! Thanks..Version: 7.2.1
Great.... ButI love telegram, a friend put me onto the app. It's nice for dating when you don't want to give out your number or socials to stay discreet. You can only voice call no video call.. I don't mind though, you can send videos, pictures and voice messages. But they took away timed photos/videos. That was my FAVORITE feature, it's like Snapchat if I want to send a video or picture I could time it... But I can't anymore, please bring feature back. It seems like every single update they take away a great feature, I shouldn’t have to download something on my computer to sign into a new phone , I know it makes you guys think you’re being secure but it’s making it more complicated.... bout ready to say a few this app and go to WhatsApp , not everyone has a computer they can concurrently download on just to sign in on a new phone . Like come on do better.Version: 6.2.1
One BIG flawI love this app, have used it every day for the last year. It is powerful and elegant. The one big drawback is the SEARCH. How do you search for Groups and Channels? By searching for a keyword. That’s it. Not good! Everyone says this is the achilles heal, and it’s weird that the issue has never been resolved. Here’s a suggestion for the developer. Add a feature of searching for Groups/Channels by allowing the owner to place their G/C into CATEGORIES (such as “health”, “food”, etc) then everything search related, falling into those categories, is displayed by title. Keep the Keyword searches, just add this capability. There are groups on Telegram that were formed specifically to allow owners to ADVERTISE their group, in order to grow, because the search feature is so inadequate. Please address this issue. And thanks for a great app. 👍🏻.Version: 8.0
Mask, stickers, and chatrooms don’t workI love the idea of this app and I love that it has polls, rules set, bots, and other things but my app crashes 100% of the time when ever I go into settings to check out the “Masks”. It just kicks me out the app than when I look for stickers there’s only a few compared to what others claim they have (I’m only seeing a little when others have and see a lot more options than me) and I’m unable to find Chatrooms. The only option I have is to open messages to chat with someone but I want to go to a chatroom. Not chat with someone. Someone said I’m fully missing the icon (a magnify glass) and only have the box with a pencil which is for starting a new message with someone. Can this be fixed soon? I just download the app three days ago. So there isn’t any updates I’m neglecting to update when it says the last update was two week ago. Someone mind helping?.Version: 5.11.1
BugHi telegram developers, I noticed a problem after your last update, it's about when i download a song and try to listening to it after 2 or 3 times in repeat mode music stops playing ,but in lock screen i have it ,and shows that music is playing but nothing played and music player is terminated , then i have to reopen the telegram and play it again and again by the way when you are in the app everything works properly, this problem shows itself when you’re going to lockscreen or open another app when telegram is in background, telegram last 2 updates are more reliable than this version and it’s really annoying specially behind the wheel or when i put on my handsfree, i hope developers fix this bug to make it the best social app like the past . (iPhone 7plus)
Best regards.Version: 5.11.1
Nothing CompetesThis is my go-to messaging service. Security, speed, functionality, and fun features are all here.
There are a few downfalls to the platform, such as groups being a little clunky to create if you do not have the people you are adding to the group in your contacts, no video calling, needing to use your phone number to make an account, etc., but these are all minor issues with an otherwise superb service that is always being improved. It’s great to be able to send a file and not have to worry too much about file transfer limits, like on Discord.
Since the standard Telegram app became telegram X, I found one bug- most of my sticker packs will not correctly load, and will be unusable. That’s the only bug I’ve encountered so far..Version: 5.0.17
Amazing app, the best! just one thingI rlly like telegram. Its the best messaging app in my opinion. Has everything that i need in a messaging app, secure ,safe, easy and fast and very amazing in general! Has so many options for everything. And is totally worth loading!!! I been using it for the past 5 years and its totally my number one app for everything! But only one complain i have for the newest update: when i edit a photo on the app , like drawing on it or just changing the appearance of the pic, the app crushes and goes to my home screen, its been happening ever since i updated telegram and i just want you guys to fix that, other than that the app is amazing and works perfectly fine! Thanks for making the best app ever!!!.Version: 8.1.2
Notifications Drive Me InsaneThe app is quite good but I gave it 3 stars because it’s notifications feature is horrific. I absolutely loathe apps that don’t respect my notifications preferences and this one in particular doesn’t like to suppress the very annoying ones that come in every single time someone in my contacts list joins Telegram. I really don’t care to know who joins the service from my contacts every time it occurs. Turning this notification off does not from stoping them from continuing to arrive in-app, and the only way to stop this is to turn off Notifications in my phone’s global settings, but doing so will make one forego notifications that I do care about, such as from new messages. It’s baffling they choose to force users have to deal with this, it’s the one thing that’s making me consider leaving the app altogether..Version: 8.6
Need imediate helpHi telegram is one of the best communication apps out there but the ownership of channels and groups is a pain in the neck really, i have bought a channel from an admin and she claimed that she owns the channel i had no idea about owner stuff and that you can transfer the ownership of channels until it was late, she by mistake made someone admin with her other account just when i thought she had left the channel with her both accounts when i demanded an answer she refused stubbornly to do so, so i did a research and found out that iam just an admin despite paying huge amount of cash and now she refuses to co operate but can get back at any time and kick me from moy own chhannel i wrote to telegram support saying i have all the vidence that i paid money to this guy and chat records are there too but they didnt answered back 😞😔 it seems that there is no hope for me....Version: 7.8.2
Annoyed With Apple ItselfI absolutely enjoy this app. I’ve had it for years and I find it so much easier to use than any other social media outlet out there. It’s safe, the end-to-end encryption is phenomenal, and the app itself allows me to talk to so many of my friends that I have around the world. Apple removing it from the App Store is absolutely ridiculous and stupid. Telegram has done nothing wrong, and if they did I want to see the encryption proof. There’s no reason those with IPhones should have to lose the ability to talk to their friends on a stream line platform simply because “it violated Apple’s guidelines”. It’s ridiculous and I am keeping my Telegram on my IPhone whether apple likes it or not!.Version: 7.3.1
Good but needs improvementsI like the App, it has a lot of features, but couple of things are missing compare to other Apps: 1) Group video calls. 2) Using system contacts photos, Signal App uses this feature and it’s great, makes it easier to find contacts specially for those who don’t use photos in their profiles or use random ones, so let the App uses my own contacts photo!
Bugs need to be fixed: 1) notifications don’t work properly, sometimes you get the message previews on lock screen and sometimes nothing. 2) in group chats sometimes it doesn’t say who sent the message or media, no name tag shows. And I think you should add the senders name on every single message, not just the last one! It’s really annoying and confusing trying to figure out who sent what!
Telegram rocks, but Apple censorsI like app, a lot. I can group chat with friends, or get lost in the wilds with foreigners and weirdos, so a plus in my book
The only bad I can say with this app, lies not with its developers, but with Apple and the AppStore. I’ll find channels with discourse of all varying opinions. Something I find refreshing. But I’ll then go to revisit, only be prompted that the channel is blocked due to violations of AppStore guidelines. There is no violation. It’s Apple using its corporate mass to silence opinions it seems as bad.
Because of this, I will NEVER use or buy another Apple product. Once this phone dies, that’s it. Anything but an Apple. ANY other phone. A product and company, that keeps me from viewing content that I sought out myself, should never even make it to market.Version: 5.8.1
The best intuitive sms appAmazing everything!! Fluid of the program: perfect! Design: beautiful and friendly user, chooser friendly of options, aka dark theme. There’s so much choices and I am amazed by the themes and choices they have. Program: runs as fluid as a slippery butter on a pancake, it is fantastic. Encryption technology software?: Beats Facebook messenger to the rocks. Safety?: As safe in no penetration of Russian bots migrating like Trojans. Clear and safe to hold a secure conversation. Recommendation?: For the love of God download this app, delete messenger and any other sms wanna be replacement platform. Want to be safe and secure I recommend this app. It beats any alternative platform of encryption based software out there. Please check their site out! There’s so much amazing little gold nuggets..Version: 5.3
Block issuePlease kindly do something about the blocking issue. I tried to message my brother the whole day and I couldn’t get in touch with him because they said I have been blocked by someone I don’t even remember texting so I have to wait for some days . I was involved in a accident and had to wait for 3 days until I finally called them on telegram to come get me at the hospital. I’m really ashamed about it and would like you to do an upgrade about it . I don’t think blocking someone should prevent you from texting others . That’s the only problem I’m having with this app and I would like you to please do something about it . Thank you ..Version: 8.7.1
Find people nearby and nearby groups???Ok why??? I love telegram’s interface, the app is smooth. However, what I am going to voice out about is their “Find People Nearby” and “Nearby Groups” feature. There really is no need for that when this app was about private messaging. “. Fast. Secure. Powerful” and yet they add those two features that that contradict. What do I find on these features that’s displeasing? A bunch of random nasty people with nasty profile pictures. Moving on to Nearby Groups, like “m4m”, “m4w”, “taboo”..what is this, a throwback of Craigslist lol. Not enough moderation from Telegram on these features. Finally and most importantly, what happens when a child/ underage teen creates a Telegram account??? What then when they’re exposed to these things. Not good, just remove both things and your app is solid..Version: 7.9.2
IPad version has a memory leakChats with GIFs seem to be the biggest cause, but after 5 min of using and viewing gifs the performance of gifs becomes a slide show. What is worse it even slows down all other apps on the device. Just 15-30min in a system reboot is needed. (Force closing the app doesn’t fix it) — This is probably also an iPad OS bug (I’m on latest OS v14.6) but this issue has happened to two iPads of mine, iPad Pro 10.5” (I think it was 2017) and still occurs with a brand new iPad Pro 12” 2021 model!
This issue has happened for almost a year now and there has not been a fix. Im very disappointed at this point. I have no idea why this only occurs on iPad devices, iOS devices dont have this issue. My iPhone 8 runs telegram so much better and that phone is so much older. :(.Version: 7.7
“File Sharing”Telegram is a perfect, secure, high speed cloud based messenger which it makes it almost the most powerful messenger app.
But the problem is “file” sharing on iPhone. When you want to share a heavy file (by tapping the share button on the file and choose telegram to send) you have to look at the upload progress till it finishes the percentage line! If you skip this level or want to do something else on your phone you won’t be able, or you will lose your file sharing progress. Whatsapp isn't like that and the file can be seen in your whatsapp messenger even if it has not been sent with a “retry sending” button that can easily send your file in the app itself and without exiting the messenger.
Great privacy app with lots of optionsAfter many of my favorite political social media personalities were deleted from Twitter and Facebook I decided to try out telegram. A few years ago I would say this app was fairly dead,However in 2021 there is so much content it’s insane. Telegram is my number 1 news app. It’s nice having all of your liked pages in a streamlined top down order . I also like how you can individually turn off notifications for all or individual pages you like. The private messaging is cool as well . Unlike Facebook and Twitter telegram is supposed to not sell your data to third parties. I’d highly recommend telegram at the moment 👏.Version: 7.7
Yah! Native iPad and Mac versions!I abandoned WhatsApp a long ago because it refused to offer the native iPad version, which forced me to use iPhone a lot of time. Its desktop version for macOS is a huge joke: I had to aim my iPhone at the monitor to scan QR-code in order to unlock the access every time I launch WhatsApp after booting up. Not to mention lot of security issues that kept coming up a lot of times.
I tested Telegram for a while and was convinced it is better app than WhatsApp. I persuaded my friends to try Telegram app, and many of them switched to Telegram while reducing the use of WhatsApp.
What makes Telegram shine? It has native apps for all of products running macOS, iOS, iPadOS, and watchOS with consistent interface. I like the animated stickers much more than emojis. So do my friends, too.
Other thing is that Telegram is independent (so far) and not under control of Fakebook or other corporations with vested interests.
The only downside is watchOS app that seems to take a while to load up the chats when launching. That‘s a very minor thing, not the end of world thing..Version: 7.0
Awesome updateI just came back from using Telegram after the latest update, video updates were something I was waiting for to happen and was really happy to hear that it became a reality! Although the video profile itself cannot animate unless I enter a person’s profile. I wish that, in the next batch of fixes, we can watch those video profiles animate while chatting, it would add a lot of liveliness to the chat!
Another thing I’m hoping for to drop in the next major update is calling (video/audio), and the ability to make group calls with my friends and colleagues. It would be a very useful and another exciting edition to an already amazing app.
Keep on doing the good work Team Telegram!.Version: 6.3
Best AppThis is my BEST APP so far!! I love how fast it is, and hod’s much information it gives. Things such as when a person is online, when a person was last seen, and when something had been delivered and read. It also gives you the chance to delete something you regret, or didn’t mean to send. The sticker sets are free and fun, and I much prefer them to emojis. You can make your OWN profile, so that you can choose what picture others see, and what name. I don’t really have any feedback, or anything to fix, but I think it would be cool if you could change font and colors on the app, instead of downloading an entirely new app. Overall, this is an amazing, secure app..Version: 6.1.2
Fave.I use telegram with my friends for our group chat over iMessage. there are a few critical features that make it much more of a user-friendly platform for heavy discussion groups. i love the “reply” feature. additionally, the search feature is unmatched; as long as you can remember even one of the unique words in a thought, you can locate the message. also the way the app sorts shared media into groups is extremely helpful.
i heavily use the saved messages feature (the messages you share with yourself).
last but not least, the fact that this platform is accessible on so many mediums, makes it easy to share thoughts and ideas across devices..Version: 5.1.1
Archive problemAfter update to last version i don't have access to archive!!.Version: 5.12
New designThis app is Gorgeous for chat. But make a decision to redesigned the interface and make the app more beautifull like the new player for ios user. Insret new theme and more.
I appreciate it thanks.Version: 4.4
Whatsapp-esqueNot exactly original with the layout but I really like the simplicity and have enjoyed the gamebots features as well. The only thing Telegram lacks compared to whatsapp is the ‘Delivered’ & ‘Read’ report - which to me is IMPORTANT especially in groups to know which members have read the announcements I send and which ones haven’t and therefore have to be followed up. So please add those features and I’ll come back to give a 5star review, thanks.Version: 4.4
ComplainingPeople on these reviews complaining about this app being used for child trafficking and sex offenders? Every single app, mainly TikTok has sex offenders and child trafficking. I’m not condoning those actions, but I feel like people are targeting Telegram because there isn’t the harsh censorship other apps claim to have, even though their idea of censorship is whatever they see fit, and that’s why there’s still sex offenders on every other app. Targeting this app and trying to gain censorship isn’t going to do anything, except censor people who are sharing truths..Version: 7.8.2
Best must getI wish I could give this app 6 because there are so many features you can message someone without wifi or data as long as the person you are talking too has wifi or data.Version: 5.9.1

PrivacyThey say your data is never disclosed, but without end to end encryption of *all data* *on* by default, that means that they and anyone else who sends them a legal request actually can access this data. They need to be less misleading in their marketing copy..Version: 7.3.1
Need to add status/stories option.Would love to see telegram add a 24 hr stories feature, other then that good communication app..Version: 7.3.1
It’s great but there is spam texts sometimesI got a spam text on telegram and luckily it was nothing inappropriate or bad but I deleted it still .
I gave you guys a three star rating because of the risk of Spam texts or links but there are no bugs in the app and I liked it other than the spam texts . I had to delete telegram also because of the risk of spam texts or links .
I would wish you guys could change that so I could redownload it .
Thanks ..Version: 6.2.1
